Nature photographer and Master Gardener Volunteer Matt Valencic will help you create a year round bird friendly yard with the basic needs of food, water, shelter and security. Matt will share some of his fascinating widely viewed photos of resident birds, summer breeders and spring/fall migrant birds and encourage you to welcome them by providing desirable habitat elements in your yard.
Pollinator specialist and Master Gardener Volunteer Chris Pappas presents a program on making your garden butterfly friendly. She will also provide information on identifying butterflies, interesting butterfly biology facts and what plants to choose when designing your butterfly garden. For the budget minded or those with small spaces, this might include butterfly container gardens. Perhaps even changing some of your garden practices will favor pollinators.
